Exclamation Service Engine Soon - Oxygen Sensors

Hey All . . .

My service engine light came on this week and I had it checked at BMW . . . They say its because of the Oxygen Sensor - Tank 2 Pre Cat and needs to be changed and would cost around $700 . . . Wanted to know if this is something that needs to be fixed in the showroom or probably have it fixed elsewhere for a much better price . . . Appreciate your time and comments . . .

Search around for the best price on a new bosch sensor. RealOEM will give you the part # you need and then I'd look at places like pelicanparts, or rmeuropean for the best price. Shouldn't be more than 175. Then take it to a reputable indy to get installed if you're not comfortable doing it yourself. If i remember correctly, 2 are hard to get to and the other 2 aren't so bad. Whatever you do don't pay a dealer 700 for a single 02 sensor. And if you take your time in changing it out Im pretty sure the only ill affects you'll experience will be poor gas mileage.

You might just need to have this recall done:
